With long-running games like League of Legends and DotA 2, eventually things will start to get a bit “boring” because after a while, players will get used to characters, the maps, and abilities. This is why developers usually introduce new maps, modes, and heroes every now and then. Now if you’ve felt that DotA 2 has been getting a bit long in the tooth, fret not.

Valve has recently announced that the latest update to the game dubbed “The Dueling Fates” is now live. This is a new update to DotA 2 that will introduce a bunch of changes to the game, although we guess the key highlight of this particular patch is the fact that it will be introducing two new heroes in the form of Dark Willow and Pangolier (pictured above).

According to Valve, “Eager to dash into danger at a moment’s notice, the Pangolier thrives on disrupting enemy movements and placing himself in the midst of chaos. Artfully guiding his blade between cracks in armor and shrugging off attacks with his protective scales, this graceful swordsman is always ready to roll into battle.”

As for Dark Willow, “A slight flutter from the shadows may be all an enemy sees of Dark Willow, as she eludes pursuit and controls her foe’s movements with cunning fae tricks. Calling upon powers far more ancient than any scholarly magic, she binds enemies in place before unleashing the full wrath and terror of the fae realm upon them.”

However like we said, the patch does more than add new heroes to the game. The patch also introduces new ranked seasons for MMR, a new game mode, and Valve has also announced that they will be reworking the Battle Pass system. More information regarding the update can be found on the DotA 2 website.
